I like this game. I'm just sorry that I forgot to try it after I d/l as a DD. I played the demo the next day and decided even though I missed the $2.99 price, I liked it well enough to buy it for $4.99 during the Labor Day sale. Silly me.

This is certainly not the most challenging game I've ever played, but I don't always want to shake up my little grey cells. A number of people have commented that they don't like the voice-over dialogue between the brother and sister because it gets annoying. Actually, I'm getting a kick out it. Somebody said the brother was dorky, but I just think he's irrepressibly optimistic and enthusiastic and a nice counterpoint to his sister's skepticism and sarcasm.

The overall gameplay is somewhat repetitious, but there's enough variety to keep my interest. I like how the H0 scenes change from word list to silhouette to find several of the same item. I also like taking "pictures" of certain items. You play the H0 scenes when you get a request on your PDA from various people. You can choose when to look for objects and in what order, so you could play a few H0 scenes in a row or mix them up looking for clues to your next location. The hint system is nice, too. You can get a silhouette on you PDA by clicking on the name, or you can get an actual hint that shows a location on a grid, but you still have to find it yourself.

It's important to play all the H0 scenes so you can earn as much money as possible, even if you already have enough for your next "ticket."

This is one for the beginners out there. Way too simple for my taste. Game has problems. I'm stuck & unable to get my ticket to China. I've tried uninstalling & downloading the game again w/o any change. I'd say better to pass on this one. Sorry I wasted money on it.

This is a lighthearted and enjoyable game as it goes from place to place. The game is straightforward and doesn't require any major thought. Easy way to spend a lazy day. The scenes were well done and I appreciated it being well lit. The HOs weren't so miniscule or covered with only one small piece showing. In other words, a stressfree game. If your pleasure is something with challenging puzzles or an HOG that is mainly an adventure game this may not be it---not like the recent MCF games. Personally, I thought it was fun and well worth the DD $. If there is a sequel I will purchase it as well.

I broke the Hint button. Seriously.
I didn't mean to break it but I had this soccer ball and a crumpled soda can and I couldn't get rid of them and then they disappeared but they are still on the list of items to find. And the Hint button has had an "X" over it for quite some time now.

I broke it.

I thought this game was weird but I did like the female protagonist's personality. She had every right to be grouchy - she did all the work. It might be a good game but I'm still at the beginning and with a broken Hint button I don't think I'm going to progress very far. I could try uninstalling it and trying it again and maybe I will.

This is one of those games that you need to try the demo. Maybe you can break the Hint button, too!
